OneRoof Energy is a technology-rich solar finance provider that has quickly become one of the nation’s leading sources of affordable solar leasing. At OneRoof Energy, we believe that solar electricity should be affordable to everyone. Through the SolarSelect® financing program, homeowners can convert to clean, affordable solar electricity for little or no money down.
The key to our success is undeniably powerful financing and a seasoned executive team of industry experts who bring more than 120 years of collective experience leading successful start-up, entrepreneurial-based companies. The OneRoof Energy team has a proven track record in renewable energy and expertise in project finance and structuring.
The OneRoof Energy mission is to bring homeowner’s solar the way they like it – with fully warrantied, high-performance equipment and premium solar services all without the high, out-of-pocket costs.
OneRoof Energy is backed by some of the world’s most reputable financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley Inc., Black Coral Capital Alternergy and strategic financial partner, Hanwha Group. Hanwha is an 88 billion dollar Korean global industry leader fully integrated in all parts of the photovoltaic (PV) supply chain, from mining poly silicon to manufacturing ingots, wafers, cells and highly efficient modules. Black Coral is a privately held fund investing exclusively in clean tech and renewable energy. OneRoof Energy’s strategic partners are committed to the renewable energy space, so we can guarantee that we will be here for you today… and tomorrow.
According to data provided by the California Solar Initiative, over 74% of California solar installations last year were the result of a third-party leasing investment.
OneRoof Energy’s SolarSelect program makes solar electricity easy and affordable for homeowners. This means that homeowners can now purchase clean electricity without purchasing panels. Instead, homeowners pay for their (solar) electricity on a monthly basis, just like they do now, at a price that is significantly less than their current electrical cost. OneRoof Energy provides a reassuring 100 percent performance guarantee that ensures the system will produce the amount of electricity stated in the agreement or we will refund the homeowner the difference. It’s that simple. The entire system is warrantied for the life of the agreement –25 years.
